The future of Palmetto Island depends on Community Support

     Community support is a contributing factor in helping to keep a state park open and flourishing. Community support got this park open…community support will help to keep it open. 

     Everyone has some ‘thing’ they can contribute. Your fresh ideas and creativity are important in growing our group and supporting the park.  We invite members or anyone who enjoys the park to share their input, ideas and suggestions on how we can help make the park better. We think of it as “the People’s Park.”

     Memberships are always open. Current members are eligible to serve on the Friends of Palmetto Island Board of Directors and committees. As a member, your vote elects the Directors who will lead the group for each year. Each month members receive our complimentary electronic newsletter, updating you about park programs and activities. Your membership fee is a tax deductible donation, as Friends of Palmetto Island is a 501(c)3 public charity. Donations are always welcome and appreciated! 

      By becoming a 'Friend' or by visiting the park, we feel you are actually showing that you share our passion for the site. Your membership and attendance help keep us motivated in our mission and continue to send our original message that people enjoy, appreciate and support Palmetto Island State Park.  

    Even if you decide that membership is not for you, we encourage you to sign up for our complimentary electronic newsletter. Everyone is eligible to receive “Palmetto Pal’s Paper.” It’s the best way to keep you connected to the park, so sign up today.  We would really appreciate your continued support for us and Palmetto Island State Park.  
    Please note…Membership in Friends of Palmetto Island State Park, Inc. does not entitle any member to any special privileges at Palmetto Island State Park. If you make a special request, it is subject to Palmetto Island’s staff’s discretion and their determinations shall be final.
